Friends,

About 2200 last night, 16FEB17, (according to our local SA cable news channel), yet another ARMED CRIMINAL "got his", when he broke into a single-family home in Southside San Antonio.

The criminal  "kicked in the back door" on the house down there & got about 20 feet into the home, when he met a pattern of shot out of a shotgun in the hands of a 31YO lady, "who was home alone".

The deceased was armed with a .22LR revolver & (according to the spokeswoman of SAPD)  had a "long history of criminal acts, including narcotics use, assaults & burglary".

One would think that the criminal minority would GET THE MESSAGE that committing home invasions in Texas is "hazardous to your health".

yours, satx

Great to hear that another criminal has been permanently rehabilitated.
Remember, criminals are dumb for the most part, so it will take many more examples for them to learn from.

Hate she had to do it but glad she was prepared.

A shotgun is the great equalizer. Have a SXS and a pump action on guard duty 24/7.

Whether or not the 'perp got what he deserved',the really sad part to me is the victim will have PTSD for some time to come, and there's likely some little kid who is going to require public assistance because their parent took a capital risk and lost.

Alte Schule,

According to "the spokeswoman" for SAPD, the shotgun was the lady's boyfriend's "bird gun", which he had left at her house "in error". = Sometimes such "accidents" work out for the best.

I shudder to think what the criminal might have done to the young lady, who was home alone, had she NOT have "had access to" her BF's shotgun, given the criminal's past criminal acts.

And another new female joins the growing ranks of gun owners.
I don't expect her to see what would happen if she didn't have a gun handy in the future.

Domineaux,

IMO, the BF should help her pick-out a suitable firearm (IF she needs such help in selecting one) and perhaps BUY her a firearm for her next birthday/Christmas/etc.

An armed home intruder is one of the worse case scenarios anyone of us could imagine and an absolute nightmare for a female alone in her own home. Hopefully she won't suffer any further mental anguish.

Nothing like a close range shot with a load of #6 bird shot to the head or center mass to ruin a degenerates day.

I take it back.

This solves the question we were going back and forth over a few months back about whether birdshot is enough gun for home defense. :U

Alte Schule; Gilgondorin,

I have NO way of knowing if the lady's "bird gun" was loaded with birdshot or NOT. - The cable channel didn't even say which gauge that the shotgun was, much less what sort of shells.

I believe that at VERY close range that ANY load of shot is potentially lethal, including my "dove loads" out of my Winchester Model 42. - That said, a .410 pump-gun would NOT be my choice for house defense IF there was any other choices in a firearm.
(As I've said elsewhere, my CHOICE for home defense is a 12-gauge riot-gun loaded with 5 magnum loads of #4 buckshot.)

yours, satx

Assume it was a .410 at (minimum assumed from the article) relatively close range, you're still imparting 600 ft-lbs of energy onto a sub-square inch area.   It's going thru the skin.  It's going through the bone.  There's going to be alot of blood.  Not going to be pretty. 
That's similar to a .357 up to a light .44 in muzzle energy.  But much harder to remove the projectiles.
